Malibu's HistoricAdamson House

The historic Malibu Adamson House, built in 1929 by Rhoda and Merritt Adamson as a summer beach house, is a timeless gem that stands elegantly between Surfrider Beach and Malibu Lagoon, just a stone's throw away from the iconic Malibu Pier. This exquisite home, now preserved as a museum open to the public, pays homage to the city's rich beginnings. The story of the Adamson House begins with Rhoda's parents, the esteemed Rindge family, who purchased a staggering 14,000 acres of what is now Malibu in 1892 for a mere $140,000. As a wedding gift, Rhoda's mother bestowed upon her and her husband Merritt, 13 acres of prime land. To bring their vision to life, the couple enlisted the renowned architect and family friend, Stiles Clements, who designed the house in the popular Spanish Colonial style, reflecting the couple's upbringing.

Rhoda and Merritt split their time between the beach house and their residence in Hancock Park in Los Angeles until 1936, when they moved to Malibu permanently with their children. The Adamson family was not only known for their beautiful house but also for establishing and managing the world-renowned dairy and farm, Adohr Stock Farms, nearby. Merritt and Rhoda resided in the house until their respective passings in 1949 and 1962. Today, visitors to the Adamson House can step back in time and witness the incredible design of this 4,500 square-foot, 5-bedroom home. Remarkably, about 95 percent of the original furnishings have been preserved. The house boasts an extensive use of tiles sourced from the famous Malibu Potteries company founded by May Rindge in 1926. The decorative tiles showcase Mayan, Moorish, Moroccan, Saracen, and Persian-style designs, adorning everything from doorways to a spectacular tile Persian carpet to the iconic peacock fountain.

Design aside, the Adamson House holds a significant place in history, designated as a California Historical Landmark in 1985 with the support of the Malibu Historical Society. Today, the Malibu Adamson House Foundation takes care of the day-to-day operation of the house, the maintenance of its grounds, and public education about the house's history and the broader history of Malibu.

In addition to tours, which also include a visit to the Malibu Lagoon Museum in the original five-car garage, the Foundation generates funding for maintenance through innovative events. Glaze-a-Tile days offer visitors a chance to enjoy champagne, lunch, estate tours, and tile glazing classes inspired by the historic Malibu Potteries. In addition, the Adamson House is available for unique activities and events, including weddings and special occasions. From March through November, the stunning oceanfront property opens its outdoor areas for rental, allowing guests to bask in the timeless beauty of this historic home. adamsonhouse.com

Where Coastal Beauty Meets Academic Excellence

Malibu’s Pepperdine University, founded in 1937, has evolved into one of the premier universities in the United States. Its campus boasts breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and vibrant landscaping, fostering an inspiring atmosphere for both students and visitors. Pepperdine hosts a range of attractions, including the Frederick R. Weisman Museum, the Lisa Smith Wengler Center for the Arts, the annual Waves of Flags display, and the Heroes Garden. These features collectively contribute to Pepperdine University’s distinctive character, providing an unparalleled setting for learning and exploration.


The annual Waves of Flags display at Pepperdine University is a poignant event held each year to honor the lives lost on September 11. Established by a group of students in 2008, this tradition entails arranging 2,977 flags — each symbolizing a person who perished in the attack— staged on the expansive front lawn along Pacific Coast Highway and Malibu Canyon. The array of flags serves as a profound tribute to the Americans who lost their lives, providing a solemn opportunity for individuals to pay their respects. Beyond its role as a memorial, this annual display fosters unity among people of diverse backgrounds, offering a space to collectively remember those lost to senseless violence while also celebrating our nation’s resilience in the face of adversity. Set against the backdrop of the university’s rolling hills, the display extends to the corner at PCH and Malibu Canyon Road. Walking amidst the fluttering flags in the sunset breeze can evoke a deeply moving experience, encapsulating the somber yet resilient spirit of remembrance and unity.


The Weisman Museum at Pepperdine University is home to a collection of artifacts and artworks from around the world. Established in 1995 with a mission to cultivate an appreciation for contemporary culture and history through its exhibitions, collections, and programs, the museum showcases exhibits by both local and international artists. For the past three decades, the Weisman Museum of Art has been the proud host of over 500 artistic masterpieces gifted by a multitude of generous donors. The collections reflect a diverse spectrum of creative expressions, featuring a variety of mediums from celebrated artists like Bas Jan Ader, Lita Albuquerque, Polly Apfelbaum, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, among many others.



The Thomas E. Burnett, Jr. Heroes Garden is a tranquil, inspiring place dedicated to honoring heroes from all walks of life. Located on the Pepperdine University campus, this beautiful garden features several notable landmarks commemorating those who have served their country or made significant contributions to society.

Heroes Garden stands as a heartfelt tribute, a timeless symbol of the resilience and courage exhibited on September 11, 2001. This profound site is a permanent reminder of the fateful day when three airplanes tragically struck the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, DC.

Among the brave hearts were Graziadio Business School alumnus Thomas E. Burnett, Jr. (MBA 95), who was on United Flight 93—the fourth hijacked plane that crashed into a Pennsylvania field. He, along with other passengers, valiantly attempted to overpower the hijackers and avert the plane’s course away from its intended target, the Capitol Building in Washington, DC. Their selfless act of heroism undoubtedly saved numerous lives.

Heroes Garden was thoughtfully designed to honor Burnett’s sacrifice, along with that of so many others, on that unforgettable day when nearly 3,000 precious lives were lost. It stands as a serene space of reflection, inspiring us to remember and honor the indomitable spirit of humanity, even in times of adversity. We warmly invite you to visit and pay homage to these extraordinary heroes.

At the center of the Heroes Garden stands an impressive memorial wall with engraved names of brave individuals who were killed in action while serving in the United States Armed Forces during World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and

other conflicts. The wall also pays tribute to graduates from Pepperdine University who lost their lives protecting our freedom overseas, as well as first responders and public servants whose ultimate sacrifice saved countless innocent lives here at home.

Nearby stands a statue titled “Rise Together,” which was created by sculptor Gary Tillery. This powerful piece depicts two hands reaching out towards each other—one representing America’s veterans and first responders while the other hand symbolizes civilians—in order to remind us that every individual has a part to play in helping make our nation strong again after tragedy strikes.


The Center for the Arts at Pepperdine is a hub of activity offering various performing arts experiences. The center plays host to performances from all over the world, ranging from classical music and dance to modern theatre and comedy. It also provides students with opportunities to get involved in the performing arts through classes and workshops in acting, voice, movement, improvisation, and more.

Events held at the Center for the Performing Arts are varied throughout each year, and the Center will announce the 2024-2025 season soon. Music lovers can attend concerts featuring acclaimed symphony orchestras or popular singers, while theater fans have access to Broadway-style productions performed by professional actors. Dance enthusiasts can enjoy ballet performances or watch contemporary shows executed by talented dancers from around the globe. Additionally, there are lectures on topics such as history of performance art offered several times during each semester, which offer insight into this ever-evolving field of study.

Picture Worlds: Greek, Maya, and Moche Pottery

More than 40 ancient painted vessels from three cultures on view at the Getty Villa Museum until July 29, 2024

The J. Paul Getty Museum presents  Picture Worlds: Greek, Maya, and Moche Pottery, an exhibition that brings together three major world ceramic traditions: that of the Greeks in the Mediterranean, the Maya in Central America, and the Moche of northern Peru.

On view at the Getty Villa Museum from April 10 through July 29, 2024 this will be the first major exhibition to juxtapose the painted pottery of these distinct societies, devoting special attention to the narrative art and social settings in which these dynamic objects were seen and handled.

Pottery production has been virtually universal around the globe, and image-mak-

ing almost as ubiquitous. But among the many ancient cultures that decorated ceramics, the Greeks (Archaic and Classical Periods, 700-323 BCE), the Maya (Late Classic Period, 550-850 CE), and the Moche (Early Intermediate period and Middle Horizon, 200-850 CE) stand out for their painted vessels adorned with depictions of heroic adventures, divine encounters, ritual actions, and legendary events. These pots–made for drinking and feasting, gift-giving or trade, and as offerings–are fundamentally social objects, and the narratives painted upon their surfaces prompted and perpetuated the sharing of cultures, stories, and ideals.

“Maya, Moche, and Greek painted pottery have long been studied, collected,

in fresh ways but also to explore the communal practices that these richly evocative images made possible,” says Timothy Potts, Maria Hummer-Tuttle and Robert Tuttle Director of the J. Paul Getty Museum.


Throughout the exhibition, Greek, Maya, and Moche vessels are displayed side by side, and their presentation is organized thematically.

The first gallery,  Makers and Users , draws attention to the people who handled these vessels, starting with the potters and painters, and then turning to the individuals who drank from them, gave them as gifts, or deposited them in tombs.

“Each vessel in this exhibition is a ‘picture

storytelling, that continue to resonate today.”

In all three cultures, stories of epic adventures and divine deeds explained and reflected belief systems and ritual practices. Such tales were retold, shared orally, and–among the Greeks and the Maya–sometimes written down as well.

Painted terracotta vessels provided these narratives with engaging visual forms, and the second section of the exhibition,  Stories and Images, presents a selection of important myths, such as the Trojan War for the Greeks, episodes involving the Maize God and other Maya deities, and adventures of the Moche divinity known today as Wrinkle Face. All demonstrate the powerful role of images in traditions of storytelling.

Although they depicted different subjects in distinct visual styles, Greek, Maya, and Moche potters and painters faced a common challenge: how to convey complex stories on the curving surfaces of pottery. The final section of the exhibition,  Handling Narrative , addresses the ways in which rotating or handling these vessels animated the painted narrative. In order to make this tangible, the exhibition will feature specially-commissioned replicas of three vessels on display, so that visitors can better appreciate the dynamic and immersive potential of these painted

“We hope that visitors will connect to the stories conveyed in the imagery from these three ancient civilizations and, through them, learn more about the artists and societies who made them and how their legacies continue today,” says Megan E. O’Neil, assistant professor of art history at Emory University.

The show will travel following the close in July and be on view at the Michael E. Carlos Museum at Emory University in Atlanta from September 15 through December 14, 2024.

Getty is a leading global arts organization committed to the exhibition, conservation, and understanding of the world’s artistic and cultural heritage. Based in Los Angeles, Getty’s Foundation, Conservation Institute, Museum, and Research Institute work collaboratively with partners around the world. Getty shares art, knowledge, and resources online at getty.edu and welcomes the public for free at its Getty Center and the Getty Villa Museum.

Sculptures GETTYExplore Egyptian Sculptural Portraits at Getty

A collection of sculptural representations of the human form from Egypt’s 26th Dynasty will be on view for three years

The J. Paul Getty Museum presents Sculpted Portraits from Ancient Egypt, a three-year long exhibition showcasing a collection of exceptional stone sculptures from Egypt’s 26th Dynasty (664–526 BCE), also known as the Saite Dynasty after its capital city of Sais.

The objects will be on view at the Getty Villa Museum from January 24 , 2024 through January 25, 2027, thanks to a generous long-term loan from the British Museum, London.

“Ancient Egyptian art has long been celebrated for its remarkable consistency of style, format, and subjects, aspects of which were widely emulated and adapted by neighboring cultures,” says Timothy Potts, Maria Hummer-Tuttle and Robert Tuttle Director of the J. Paul Getty Museum. “In fact, however, Egyptian art continued to evolve and change over the 3,000 years of its pharaonic history. This included a number of episodes which drew on types and styles from earlier periods back to the Old and Middle Kingdoms before 2000 BCE. The Saite Period was the last, and in many ways the most pervasive, of these revivals in which Egyptian artists copied and adapted earlier sculptures in an archaizing celebration of their forebears.”

Works in this exhibition portray priests and administrative officials of the Saite Dynasty. Portrait statues, often of highly polished dark stone, as well as sculpted reliefs, figurines, and anthropoid sarcophagi, served several purposes. Some were commissioned for temples, allowing the subject to eternally worship the gods and receive their blessings. Others were deposited in tombs, functioning as vessels that could be inhabited by the deceased’s spirit.

The 26th Dynasty was a time of intense artistic revival. Sculptors looked to the past for inspiration, employing styles and compositions from much earlier periods back to Egypt’s Old Kingdom. It was also the last phase of native rule before Egypt was conquered by the Persians— and then later by the Greeks and the Romans. Despite these shifting political circumstances, many of the dynasty’s sculptural trends persisted for centuries.

called ‘private portraits,’ meaning that they represent non-royal historical individuals. The 26th Dynasty was a period in which private portraiture flourished, as the people who made up the dynasty’s complex administration commissioned temple statues and tomb furnishings that express their identity and reflect the prosperity of the era,” says Sara E. Cole, assistant curator of antiquities at the Getty Villa Museum. “We hope that visitors will come away from the exhibition with an expanded idea of what makes a ‘portrait’ as well as an appreciation for Late Period Egyptian art.”

This exhibition’s gallery—part of the Getty Museum’s program The Classical World in Context—is devoted to the diverse cultures that interacted with and influenced the ancient Greeks and Romans. The Egyptian portraits on view, such as the Statue of Nakhthorheb and the Statue of Amenhotep, date back to the seventh and sixth centuries BCE, contemporary with the Archaic period in Greece.

In addition, representations in carved relief on stelae and funerary objects, such as two ushabtis belonging to men named Ankhhap and Pakhaas, complement the statues.

Sculpted Portraits from Ancient Egypt is curated by Sara E. Cole, assistant curator of antiquities at the Getty Villa Museum.

malibu beaches

From the rugged cliffs of Point Dume to the serene shores of Zuma Beach , each sandy stretch narrates its own tale, inviting exploration. As you visit, we ask that you care for our beaches and leave them better than you found them. Whether you crave the adrenaline rush of crashing waves or the peaceful embrace of a hidden cove, Malibu promises an adventure to suit every preference.


Sunbathers routinely explore the caves and cliffs of El Matador State Beach. With its distinct rock formations, this pocket beach is just one of the many hidden gems making up Robert H. Meyer Memorial State Beach. Even from the parking lot, the view of the ocean is worth the visit. To find this spectacular spot, simply look for the sign off PCH. There is a small lot accessible from 8 a.m. to sunset for an $8 fee. Note: there is no lifeguard tower here. And be prepared for a hike down the bluff to the sand—but El Matador will be worth the journey. 32215 Pacific Coast Hwy.


At the end of Westward Beach Road lies the entrance to Point Dume Nature Preserve. Following a gentle trail, visitors reach an ancient coastal sand dune, urged to stay on the path to preserve this unique landscape. The summit rewards with stunning views of Santa Monica Bay, Malibu Coast, Santa Monica Mountains, and Catalina Island. A boardwalk leads to a viewing platform. Limited disabled parking is available on Cliffside Drive near the park. Access requires a slight incline. You can hike from the parking lot to the Point Dume Natural Preserve trail. 7103 Westward Beach Rd.

Zuma Beach, a beloved Southern California destination for generations, boasts four miles of sandy shores, perfect for family fun. While its powerful waves demand caution, it’s a haven for beach activities like boogie boarding and volleyball, hosting Pepperdine University’s Sand Volleyball and the Junior Lifeguard program. With ample amenities, including lifeguards, restrooms, and snack bars, it caters to all beachgoers’ needs. Paid parking off PCH fills up quickly, so arrive early to beat the crowds. 30050 Pacific Coast Hwy.




For decades, Malibu’s renowned right point-break wave has drawn surfers, set against the backdrop of Malibu Pier. A hub for surf culture since the 1950s, it starred in numerous surf films and hosted legends like Miki Dora and Gidget. Declared the inaugural World Surfing Reserve in 2010, it offers three-point breaks catering to both longboarders and shortboarders. Lifeguards and facilities ensure safety and comfort in this sanctuary within Malibu Lagoon State Beach, beloved by birdwatchers for its diverse avian population. 23050 Pacific Coast Hwy.

Westward Beach beckons with its scenic three-mile expanse, stretching south of Zuma and around Point Dume. Its deep blue waters often play host to sea lions, dolphins, and seals. Away from PCH, it offers a wide space for beach activities like soccer and football. With lifeguards, picnic areas, and restrooms, it’s ideal for a day of leisure. However, its powerful waves warrant caution and are suitable for experienced swimmers. Paid parking is available at the end of Westward Road.

Leo Carrillo State Beach, named after actor and conservationist Leo Carrillo, offers coastal caves, tide pools, and offshore reefs for exploration. Its varied activities include surfing, diving, and windsurfing, drawing enthusiasts of all ages. The campground features amenities like restrooms and showers, while leash-friendly areas accommodate dog owners.

Parking is available for $12 per day or $3 per hour at a lot across the street and is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. 35000 Pacific Coast Hwy.


El Pescador, nestled within Robert H. Meyer Memorial Beach, offers a serene sandy cove flanked by rocky areas and tide pools. With convenient amenities like a paid parking lot and restrooms, it’s easily accessible with a short hike. While not a surfer hotspot, its gentle waves are perfect for families. Ideal for tide pooling, birdwatching, and leisurely strolls, it’s a tranquil escape perfect for exploration and relaxation. As a fairly small beach, El Pescador beach can get crowded on weekends but is often quiet on weekdays. 32900 Pacific Coast Hwy.



Sandwiched between El Matador and El Pescador, the quiet La Piedra Beach is ideal for beachgoers who would rather explore the tide pools and sunbathe instead of muscle through the beach crowds. While there aren’t any lifeguards on duty, beach hikers are bound to see wildlife— from seabirds, to harbor seals, to the abundance of sea creatures in the tide pools.

"Finding a friendly spot isn't always easy when you’re a standup paddle (SUP) surfer. After traveling abroad for a year, we found there’s no place more welcoming than Latigo Point. Summers are hard to beat at this picturesque right-hand point break, and south swells at rising tide offer promise. For a great history of Latigo Canyon as you suit up on the sand, there’s a good chance you’ll be greeted by locals who’ve preserved the charm of this gem for generations."

Where Surfing isn’t Just a Sport, It’s a Way of

Life Malibu Surf

Malibu isn’t just a coastal paradise; it’s a sanctuary for surfers, a haven where the rhythm of the waves sets the pace of life. Malibu’s surf culture is more than a sport—it’s a way of life, deeply ingrained in the sandy beaches and salty air. From dawn patrols to sunset sessions, surfers flock to Malibu’s iconic breaks, each wave a canvas for riders to express their unique style and connection with the ocean. Whether catching barrels at Surfrider Beach or carving lines at Zuma, the allure of Malibu’s waves draws enthusiasts from around the globe.

But it’s not just about riding waves; it’s about community. In Malibu, surfers form a tight-knit tribe, bonded by their love for the ocean and a shared respect for its power. Surf culture in Malibu is as diverse as the waves themselves, embracing surfers of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels. It’s a culture rooted in reverence for nature, where every session is a chance to connect with the sea and soak in the laid-back vibes of this coastal

Westward Beach

Dale Rhodes

Westward Beach isn’t just a stretch of sand and surf to me; it’s my sanctuary and home! The connection runs very deep with me from the first time I surfed Westward in early 1981. From that moment on, it became my favorite spot to surf. Westward Beach isn’t just where I surf; it’s where my heart resides.


Spencer Regan Zuma Beach

At the age of five, my family and I moved from the center of town to West Malibu, bought a Wavestorm from Costco, and made our way to Zuma Beach. My parents had no experience with the sport, so I was going in blind. With insight from lifeguards, friends, and neighbors, I learned techniques and basic ocean safety. I was made aware of the rip currents, shallow waters, and creatures that swim beneath.

I fell in love with the ocean’s duality of beauty and danger, its everchanging colors, textures, shapes, and sizes here at Zuma Beach, where I taught myself to surf. Now, I teach how to surf at Zuma, sharing my love for this spot and this sport with people from all over the world.

Leila Anawalt Point Dume

It’s rare to find a time or place that allows one to be fully present, and for me that is surfing in Point Dume . It’s one of my greatest sources of happiness. As soon as I get in the water, I find so much serenity in reading and becoming one with the ocean. My sole focus is on having a good time while

coexisting with nature and those around me. Something about immersing myself in the ocean is extremely peaceful and puts all of my life troubles into perspective. It’s here where I feel like my best self. There are no words to describe the euphoric feeling of gliding on a wave in your favorite surf break.


Matt Diamond Surfrider Beach

Being a Malibu native has been an amazing experience. Surfrider Beach is also known as Humaliwo, which means "the surf sounds loudly." The Chumash, the original Malibu Natives, called Surfrider home long before our time here in Malibu.

An experience that transcends the ordinary

Malibu, renowned for its breathtaking beaches, celebrity sightings, and world-class surf breaks, is a coastal gem that captivates visitors from around the globe. However, nestled within this picturesque landscape lies a hidden treasure that has been making waves of its own since 2015: 99 High Tide, a cannabis dispensary like no other. Founded by Malibu locals Yvonne Delarosa Green and Sam Boyer, 99 High Tide is not just a place to procure high-quality cannabis products; it's an experience that transcends the ordinary.

Actress and activist Yvonne DeLaRosa Green, along with award-winning filmmaker and surfer Sam Boyer, envisioned a space that harmoniously blends their passion for Malibu, healing, and cannabis. The outcome? 99 High Tide—a sanctuary drawing visitors into its spa-like mermaid cove, where one can truly explore one's inner self amidst the serene atmosphere. Stepping into 99 High Tide, guests are greeted by the Malibu Mermaids, esteemed consultants of the dispensary. Yvonne and Sam's meticulous attention to detail is palpable in every aspect of the establishment. From the tranquil ocean-inspired decor to the incorporation of eco-conscious practices, each element contributes to its reputation

as one of California's premier dispensaries. Sustainable initiatives such as eco-friendly packaging and energy-efficient lighting further underscore Yvonne and Sam's commitment to environmental stewardship.

However, what truly distinguishes 99 High Tide is the profound knowledge and unwavering dedication displayed by its founders. Yvonne and Sam are more than just entrepreneurs; they are advocates for cannabis reform, supporters of small-batch farmers, and believers in the plant's spiritual potential.

Beyond its primary function as a dispensary, 99 High Tide acts as a center for healing and community engagement. Through diverse events such as High Tea gatherings, Sacred Sound Baths, and charitable initiatives, Yvonne and Sam nurture connections and wellness within the Malibu community. Their philosophy transcends mere profit, emphasizing the significance of giving back and creating meaningful experiences for customers. As visitors leave 99 High Tide, they not only take with them premium cannabis products but also a sense of peace and belonging. Yvonne and Sam's creation goes beyond the conventional dispensary model, embodying the essence of healing, education, and connection.

getting here


BY AIR: The nearest major airport is Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), approximately 30 miles southeast of Malibu. From there, you can rent a car or take a shuttle service to reach Malibu.

BY CAR: If you're already in the LA area, Malibu is easily accessible by car via the Pacific Coast Highway (Route 1) from Santa Monica.


While havig a car is convenient for exploring Malibu and its surrounding areas, you can also get around using rideshare services like Uber and Lyft. Additionally, biking and walking are popular options for exploring.


DRIVING ON PCH: Drive safely by obeying the speed limit, staying focused on the road, and avoiding distractions. Be mindful of curves, narrow lanes, and pedestrians. While visiting in 2024, you will see the "White Tire Memorial" at Webb Way, a poignant reminder of lives lost on PCH.

PEDESTRIAN SAFETY: If you're exploring Malibu on foot, always use designated crosswalks when crossing the street. Be vigilant, especially when walking near busy intersections or along PCH.

BEACHES: Swim safely at beaches and be mindful of rip currents.

HYDRATION: Regularly hydrate and apply sunscreen, especially during peak sun hours.

NATURE: Respect local wildlife and marine ecosystems by observing from a safe distance and disposing of trash properly.
